Ned Rig fishing has taken the fishing industry by storm over the past few years and one of my favorite variations is what I call the “Ned Meek.” With the Ned Meek I use the Z-Man TRD MinnowZ, I use this because it is the best bait to imitate shad. The thing about shad is that they don’t lay on the bottom and they are always moving. It’s a great vertical technique for dropping down and holding the bait about a foot off the bottom and teasing fish into bitting.
The weather is one of the most unpredictable parts about fishing. Having cold fronts leads to muddy waters, and brings uncertainty about bass finding your bait. For these types of conditions, Black and Blue is one of the best baits to use. This bait is dark enough for the bass to distinguish, but has that pop of blue that catches their attention.
